Bicycles

Bike transport subsection will be useful when you are planning a trip and you need to ship your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you purchased a bicycle online and you ought to move it home. Another common reason for posting a listing in Bicycle Transport subsection is wanting to transport a bicycle as a gift to someone.

Preparing a bicycle for transportation

The safest box in which you can ship a bike is its original packaging. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can ship it without the packaging but it poses the risk of damaging more delicate elements of the bicycle (like bicycle gears). If you do not have original box, try to acquire a container that will be the most fitting in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bike in the container the better. Before you place the bicycle in the box, you should detach all the mobile parts – such as lights or handlebars.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to store them in separate package or wrap them in cardboard and then secure them to the bicycle frame. Additionally it is a good idea to wrap the handlebars as well as the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble foil should have at least 2 centimeters. Any protruding elements (for example gears should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space left in the package after placing the bike in has to be filled with cloths, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the empty space will help to minimize jolting during shipping as the bike will be unable to move around in the container. Lastly, close the box and secure it with wide tape. 

If you decide to search for a transport provider to ship the bicycle, you don’t need to provide the materials needed to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider can do that for you. Furthemore, the transport provider often can acquire professional packing materials which will assure that your bike will be shipped as safely as possible.

Price of bicycle shipping

Price of bicycle transportation mostly hinges on how long the route is as well as the size and weight of the cargo. Another price-defining factor is preferred unloading date (the tougher the deadline, the steeper the price).
